Can I still register for the 2016/2017 school year?

The 2016-2017 school year has begun, but it’s still possible to join in! Some classes have space available. Contact the membership chair for the class in which you are interested for more information.

When is registration for the 2017/2018 school year?

How will registration for the general public work? What do I need to do/bring?

Come to the school on Saturday, February 4th, 2017. Bring your checkbook (or cash) and whatever you need to be comfortable while waiting in line. Numbers indicating one's place in line will be given out at around 7:45 AM and those who are present will be invited inside and given a brief tour of the school. At 8:00 AM there will be a formal presentation of how our school works. Following this, there will be opportunities for questions and additional tours. At about 8:30 AM we will begin accepting registration from interested families in the order they arrived at the school. To register you will be expected to complete a one-page application form and pay a registration fee plus last month's (May) tuition.

How early do I need to start waiting in line?

Generally, prospective families begin lining up in front of the school before the doors open for Saturday registration.

How much will I need to pay upon registering and what methods of payment are accepted?

To register you will need to pay a registration fee plus last month's (May) tuition. The registration fee is $120.00 for the first child and $60.00 for each additional child. Tuition varies by program ($65-$185/month, see ‘Fees’). The registration fee is non-refundable; May tuition is refundable only if notice is given before August 1st. We accept personal checks, cashier's checks, and cash.

How many openings are there for each class?

We will not know how many slots are open for the 2017/2018 school year until after current members and alumni register.
After the alumni registration date above, please contact the appropriate membership chair to find out about class openings:

What if the class I want is full?

If the class you wish to register for is full, you will have the option of being placed on a waitlist. You will be asked to fill out our application form so that we have your basic information, but you will not be required to pay any registration fee until an opening is available and you accept it.

Can I get the application and registration forms online?

Yes. The application form is available by clicking here, and must be turned in at the school at the time of registration Saturday February 4th at 8:00 AM. For families who obtain a spot in the school, several registration forms will need to be filled out and turned in by mid-summer. Most registration forms are available by clicking here
